CAUGHT BY the fizz

The article focuses on how Coca-Cola addressed its need for senior talent through a top-level development scheme confronting participants with real issues. Although the company already had a reputation for growing talent from within, in 2005 only 67% of senior roles were filled internally. The first step was creating a joint job description so that each of the company's geographical regions had the same understanding of what the role required. The initiative was led by group human resource (HR) director Stevens J. Sainte-Rose.
